Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 Notebook

1 Answer

How do I flash my bios when Ican't get into windows.

I have a toshiba p15 that is having bios issues. It is sending a code 7 and won't allow me to get into DOS. I can't boot anything involving windows. I downloaded the flash bios but it doesn't boot and I can't get into DOS. IF someone can get me into DOS or tell me how to flash the bios in this laptop I would be so grateful.

If you are totally determined that BIOS is the issue, You can use other computer to make a BIOS update disk which can be a floppy disk or CD-ROM. You need to download related BIOS update and write on the media(CD or Floppy) as bootable, here is the link that you can download latest version of BIOS update

you will see step by step instruction once you download and open the BIOS updater. I hope it will resolve your issue. Please post for further assistance.

Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"


Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

TOSHIBA SATILLITE PRO SP M30... FORGET BIOS PASSWORD... I CAN NOT ENTER... LAPTOP...


there is a back door on some of there laptops the password woudl be toshiba
if that doesnt work the EASIEST WAY IS TO DOWNLOAD THE BIOS FROM THERE WEBSITE AND FLASH THE BIOS to flash the bios you just download the bios from the website it will come with an installer and you can run it on your thumbdrive toshiba will explain how to flash the bios!

i will include a link to an article to bypass it with a neat trick if you have a parrellel port its towards the bottom of the page you just "short out the pins" and it resets it
http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html is the link. worst case comes to worse you will have to open up and remove the cmos
hope this works. leave me some feedback! i took a good time looking for a solution as i thought i had it but i was wrong (tested it on mine after reading this as i have a pro series as well

Toshiba Satellite P15 Series..disk drive not working


usually when your cd/dvd/burner drive no longer reads or properly write, (when you can't read the cd is when you put a cd in the tray but nothing comes up when you try to open the drive within the folder and you know that the cd is not blank. there's no actual way around the fact of drive may have died, usually this parts may be replaceable but replacing a disk drive in laptop is costly (no much the part which could run for 40-50 dollars but the actual labor replacing it (100-150 dollars), I suggest ebay for part search.
the actual solution is to: 1. accept the loss 2. use a portable cd/dvd/burner unit through usb ports.
unfortunately there's no bios o driver updates that can be suggested that may address the problem your are having but in case you may want to try an driver or bios update this is the website to go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=556036&rpn=PSP10U&modelFilter=P15-S470&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
good luck!

Booting Notebook using external devices.


This should do it for you.

On the Phoenix BIOS:
Go to "Advanced BIOS Features".
Go to the "1st Boot device" and set it to "USB-ZIP".
(Phoenix BIOS, Revision 6. you need to go to the Boot Order screen and select "Harddisk" and hit enter, giving you a list of IDE hard drives this BIOS prefers to call a USB device an IDE harddrive)

Ex-girl put password as the adminastrator and i dont know it also my 1501 dell wont start in safe mode


Hate to say this .. if the BIOS is locked , there is nothing much, that can be done.
You need to call Dell Tech support , verify the account information and they would give you an unlock code for the BIOS . Once thats is done opening windows is easy .


Thanks
